Swedish Producer Petter Eldh announces his new album “Projekt Drums vol. 1” which embraces his love of heavy beats, psychedelic sounds and musical collaboration. This first volume is made of six diverse tracks from some of the most exciting drummers working on the scene today: Savannah Harris, Eric Harland, Nate Wood, James Maddren, Gard Nilssen and Richard Spaven.

The music is hard-hitting and mesmerising, it’s full of complexity and sonority but at the heart are the drums: the beat and groove alongside a kaleidoscope of sounds and effects. The arrangements include a total of sixteen instrumental collaborators comprising harpists, french horn and marimba players and a plethora of keyboards and unique synths. It’s original and highly engaging. No single listen will do it justice!

Over the years, Petter has been garnering praise for his versatility and the diversity of his work. He’s worked with the Dutch producer Jameszoo, including a remix for his latest record on the Brainfeeder label, he’s produced albums for Otis Sandsjö/Y-Otis and ex-Phronesis drummer Anton Eger and he leads the raucous collective Koma Saxo that features another innovative drummer, Christian Lillinger. Alongside this, he’s also regarded as one of Europe’s leading bassists having recorded with Django Bates (ECM), Kit Downes (ENEMY), Lucia Cadotsch Speak Low and Gard Nilssen Acoustic Unity. However, this new album marks a new chapter in his career, cementing his identity as a producer first and foremost.

About the artwork

About the artwork

Jake Dubber is a generative artist, interactive systems programmer, musician and multimedia creator who explores the line between artist, performer and curator. Their work often combines photography, video and data as input, and produces non-representational, psychedelic visuals as output: information synthesis at its least useful. They have collaborated with cutting-edge visual artists across Europe, created works for award-winning musicians, and exhibited their work at the Tate Modern in London.

“The Uncomfortable Planets series sees photos of the natural world transformed into unnatural worlds of their own. Clouds extrude into mountains, pebbles become scattered craters, and branches carve deep cracks in the surface of a nauseous planet like a geological Animorph” – Jake Dubber
